Blast in Kabul's Shia area kills at least seven; Daesh claims responsibility

The Afghan President Ashraf Ghani recently laid out some important principles about the implementation of the peace process at a conference in Kabul. In January, a Taliban attacker drove an explosives-laden ambulance into the heart of the capital, killing more than 100 people and wounding as many as 235.

One policeman and six civilians were killed; 15 civilians wounded.

Fazlullah is known for training suicide bombers, and was the target of a USA drone strike that killed over 20 militants on Wednesday.

"These people who do this are acting against humanity and against Islam", he said.

Fazlullah is the leader of Pakistani Taliban and is believed to be hiding in Afghanistan.

She said there is a way to end the conflict with the global support and it is now up to the Taliban leaders to respond to the serious offer of talks from the Afghan President.

Donald Trump: Sam Nunberg implicates POTUS in Russian Federation investigation
Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen is among those now being probed for the president's Russian Federation dealings. Nunberg had previously spoken on CNN claiming his aim was not to protect the president as Donald Trump was innocent.

The event was attended by some of the country's top politicians, including Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and his deputy Mohammad Mohaqiq, a senior Hazara figure.

Most Hazaras are Shiite Muslims, and Sunni militants consider all Shiites heretics and urge followers to kill them.

However, Public Health Ministry spokesman Wahid Majroh disputed the number, saying the suicide bombing claimed 10 lives and wounding 22 others.

The overnight Taliban attack in northern Takhar Province took place in a remote region of the district of Khwaja Ghar.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast, which happened near a high-profile gathering to mark the 23rd anniversary of the death of Abdul Ali Mazari - a prominent former leader of the mainly Shi'ite Hazara ethnic community who was killed by the Taliban in 1995. The report could not be independently confirmed because of the area's remoteness.
